I have a new challenge for you all, is Sergio out there listening?

For the Caroche Sport Coupe I would like to retain the original horn button in the center of the steering wheel. It originally worked to close the ground circuit to the horn, but as the frame is no longer grounded I need a new design.

Can anyone provide a simple solution? Remembering of course that I am electronically challenged, LOL.
Thank you,

George forgive me for not going back through this thread to find out. Are you using the original wheel AND horn button?

And yes Sergio can figure this out even if it has to be nuclear powered.

I can think of 2 options for the horn...
one is to switch your turn signal switch to one with a horn button. A couple are made that look very similar to the original, but with a horn.
the other is to add some sort of non grounded switch and slip ring contact to the original. that sounds harder.

George, as the frame is no longer grounded you just need to run a separate negative line back from the frame of the horn button. In other words instead of going back through the cart frame, the connection will be back through your ground wire.

If I am missing something here (because I'm sure if it was that simple you would have done it already) post a picture so that we can visualise the problem.

Hey Stan,
Wow, can't believe it has been a year since I looked fat this thread.
Answer to your question, yes, I was trying to use the original horn button in the factory steering wheel.
I have not looked at it in quite a while, just put the windshield and wiper motor back in it, so spending a little time to finish things up.
George
